Traditional finance jobs are disappearing as digital currencies, automated investing, mobile banking, and high-frequency trading require leaders to bring a new set of technology skills to decision making. The STEM-designated* Finance Master's Program prepares you to be this leader.

*A STEM-designated program allows students from outside of the U.S. to be eligible for a 24-month extension of their Optional Practical Training (OPT).

Capstone experience

No graduate business education is complete without an opportunity to apply what you've learned on a project of consequence. At Stevens, that takes many forms — a consulting assignment with an industry partner, a research project that addresses an industry need, even the chance to nurture your own entrepreneurial venture — and is customized for you, your education and your career aspirations. 

Specializations

A unique feature of this degree is the ability to customize the curriculum to best suit your career interests. Students can select from the concentrations below or, if desired, select four elective courses in any areas of their choosing, such as management science, financial engineering, mathematics, statistics and computer science.

The STEM-designated* Finance master’s program reflects the unique blend of technology, analytics and data skills required of professionals in this field, to confront the challenges of today and to better understand the business opportunities of tomorrow.

As a result of this careful curricular design, several important organizations — the CFP Board, CFA Institute and the Global Association of Risk Professionals — have recognized the Stevens master’s in Finance as providing unique value to students who complete these programs. 

In addition to its curricular design, the Finance program remains relevant through its Hoboken location, putting the campus a 10-minute train or ferry ride from Wall Street.
